Independence Bowl TicketsInaugurated in 1976, the year of America's Bicentennial, the Independence Bowl is a post-season NCAA football matchup that brings together some of the most powerful teams in the sport. These teams often have huge fan bases that are willing to travel around the country to support their school, creating an electric atmosphere at Independence Stadium that simply can't be matched. Ole Miss and Louisiana Tech have the most appearances at the Independence Bowl with Alabama, Virginia Tech, Missouri and other schools tying for third. The most notable game in the event's history occurred in December 2000 between Texas A&M and Mississippi State. The game was nicknamed the “ ”Snow Bowl“ ” when a large snowstorm, which is rare for the area, hit the stadium and blanketed the field in white powder. Another noteworthy Independence Bowl occurred in 2015 when Tulsa and Virginia Tech scored 76 points total in a single half, a record for the NCAA at the time.
